"In Paris They Know How to Build a Monument" as written by and Andrew Wyatt....
Could standard rifles shining under glass
when you first cross the snows of autumn
back in a garden in our rue vivienne
the cardinal's turned into a robin.
in paris they know how to build a monument.
outside the sagging confines of this camp they do not believe in private property.
under the fragile light of lamps i hear the angry mystics when they're davening
in paris they know how to build a monument
merry christmas mr delmaux, yes, out here they know he's just a prophet
while they bring them in at gare du l'est, your wife holds your picture in a locket.
in paris they know how to build a monument.
let no sentiment pass through this shed!
i'd say she's got you in the heart again.
i'd like to see her in her country dress
one last time before we meet the goblins.
in paris they know how to build a monument.
